"Our focus was very much to help people address their immediate concerns and anxieties and become engaged in activities that are important to them," Laura Gitlin, the study's lead author, told Reuters Health.
"For the treatment group - compared to the control group - they benefited significantly more," Gitlin, who is director of the Center for Innovative Care in Aging at Johns Hopkins University School of Nursing in Baltimore, said.
...
"Depression still remains a stigmatized form of disease that people consider a natural part of aging and something that you should overcome yourself," Gitlin said.

Good luck getting guidance. “You are on your own to figure out what is needed and how to put a plan together in a meaningful way,†said Laura N. Gitlin, professor of community public health and director of the Center for Innovative Care in Aging at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore. “It is a huge challenge.â€
Dr. Gitlin is an expert on “person-centered†care for people with Alzheimer’s disease and the originator of a massive open online course (M.O.O.C.) on this condition, which will be offered through Coursera for five weeks starting in mid-October.
...
The course offered by Dr. Gitlin and her collaborator, Nancy Hodgson, an assistant professor at the School of Nursing at Johns Hopkins, is free to anyone who wants to enroll.
...
Dr. Gitlin and Ms. Hodgson expect about 20,000 people worldwide to do so, reflecting the concern internationally over Alzheimer’s.
...
“The point is to help people understand Alzheimer’s disease from a comprehensive perspective that encompasses not only its medical implications but social, psychological and environmental considerations,†Dr. Gitlin told me in an interview.
She’s especially focused on what she calls the “lived experience†of people with dementia. Caregivers and professionals “need to know about the different stages of this disease and how a person is functioning during these stages in their home, their family and their community,†she said. Only then does it become possible “to develop a supportive environment that allows the person to use the capabilities he or she still has.â€
That’s what person-centered care is all about. Instead of dwelling on the losses suffered by someone with dementia â€" the things they can’t do any longer, the ways in which they are diminished â€" it means appreciating that “a person’s sense of dignity, of purpose, of needing and wanting a role remains intact almost to the very end,†Dr. Gitlin said.
We often forget this, because people with dementia often aren’t able to express it.
Recognizing that people won’t sit through long online lectures, Dr. Gitlin and Ms. Hodgson have broken each class into 15- or 20-minute segments.
...
Dr. Gitlin is developing non-pharmacologic interventions to treat troublesome behavioral symptoms and participated in writing an important paper on this topic, published in JAMA late last year.

"We need to grow a long-term care system based on multiple principles, and one principle I believe-which is an integral part of the Finnish model-is that long-term care is a basic right," says Dr. Laura Gitlin, professor and founding director of the Center for Innovative Care in Aging at Johns Hopkins.
